The Southern Food Destination You Need to Know About

Conde Nast Traveler

If you ask a random Richmonder on the street where to eat, their eyes light up at the idea of sharing their Richmond food experience with you, because everyone has one! RVA cares about a lot of things, but food might be what we are most passionate about. Our food and downtown, both designed to bring people together, are a match-made in culinary heaven.

We are at our happiest when we are celebrating Richmond Restaurant Week with a dinner in Shockoe Bottom, grabbing lunch from a staple food truck at the Capitol, filling our bellies at Folk Feast or enjoying small plates at Broad Appetit. Food is our unifying language and we all welcome you to enjoy and see for yourselves why the world can’t stop talking about our favorite restaurants in downtown Richmond.
